Comateens vs. Daho


Label: Parlophone / # 953 012 4

Released:  FRANCE, SPRING 2020

This EP grew out of a couple of side projects recorded at Olympic Studios in London, during the sessions for Etienne Daho’s 1996 release of Eden. Nicholas and Lyn were at the studio to assist in the recording of tracks for the album. NICHOLAS WEST had written two of the songs on Eden, Me Manquer and Soudain which he co-wrote with LYN BYRD, both songs with French lyric adaptations by ETIENNE DAHO and performed with Comateens.

The trio recorded a cover of the classic, Sally Go Round The Roses as a round, and Nicholas played bass, and along with Lyn sang backing vocals on another of West’s compositions, Sleep. In addition Etienne had an idea for a club-remix of Comateens hit Get Off My Case to be produced by FABIAN WALTMAN.
